|Jewel, I'm very impressed with you!!!!
I HATE having my claws trimmed! Your must love and trust your mom very much! My mom has had me since May, and I still only let her trim one or two claws at a time, if she's really lucky. At all other times I am as easygoing as you could ask -- I don't really mind having my paws touched, it's just when Mom extends my claws to clip them that I get upset. Usually I twist and squirm and cry bloody murder as soon she she squeezes my pawpad, and Mom, although she is experienced with handling cats, is still a big softie and worries that I will hurt myself, so she lets go and I escape with my razor-sharp claws still intact. (I don't even run away -- I just give Mom a bad look and go back to sleep. Then she feels bad for "upsetting" me and waits a day or two to try again. Ha ha ha!) The bedspread is covered with claw-picks. Mom is about ready to try the "purrito," because I like to wake her up in the mornings by making bread on her neck!
Keep us posted on your progress with the Softpaws! Mom and I are rooting for you!
